ThisConnect – Threading Worlds
17 December, 2020 - 31 January, 2021
ThisConnect: Threading Worlds is a multi-disciplinary art exhibition that examines the different dimensions of the human connection. The works reflect upon the subtle dynamics and invisible forces that cause a rift between our internal worlds and external expression. The stories of loss, pain and vulnerability are often left unsaid and unheard and there’s no time and space for us to figure out what those feelings mean, and much less motivation to connect with those unwanted feelings. But they are there. We are constantly carrying the weight of the past.
Through the documentation of performative, instructional and participatory art, the artists and participants individually and collectively came together to share, discuss, feel and heal. The pieces in this exhibition reflect courage, love, and the immense power a person can have when they return to their authenticity and innocence once again.
Featuring seven bodies of work, the exhibition is happening at 1 Neil Road and has satellite exhibitions at Temasek Shophouse, Orchard Library and Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Centre. The exhibition is supported in part by Temasek Trust’s oscar@sg fund.
Hunny & Lummy is a social artist duo that believes that the role of an artist is one of a social healer. Hun Ming Kwang and Quinn Lum Fu Loong create works and experiences that urge audiences to question, uncover, confront, and analyse the root and core of their personal truths, and ultimately provide a sense of catharsis and healing through their works.
